WTH, I have only gotten back like 48- I’m so annoyed!  Lol.  That wasn’t meant to be directed at you.  But seriously- what the hell?  You must be so pissed because I’m trying to resist the urge to call everyone super early (since I asked for responses by June 1st) and saying just that… WTH.  Why is it that people don’t understand how important it is to rsvp, and to do so in a timely manner?  Its not difficult peeps! 

Anyhoooo, we’re at:

Yes- 46

No- 2

No responses- 50

Pray that when I get home I’ll have at least 5 rsvp’s in the mail!  And I’ll pray you get 72 ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re at about a 75% acceptance rate – fine with me. I imagine we’ll be between 150-160 when all is said and done. I might give some friends who weren’t able to be invited a jingle and see if they want to join the party. ๐Ÿ™‚

Invited – 201

Yes – 94

No – 34

No Response – 72

RSVP date is Friday and they’ve been rolling in all week.

Yes: 2

No:0

Not responded: 84

But I barely sent the invitations on Monday, May 4th, so I’m still giving them time…..and set the rsvps for May 10. So hopefully I can update this with good news soon…

@moderndaisy– I hear ya.  No one wanted to tell me what date I should do either, not because they didn’t want to be helpful, it just seemed that no one knew what was appropriate.  My final numbers have to be in by June 11th so if I don’t get a response by then- they’re not coming regardless of what their plans were!  I tried to get a guestimate of how many would be making it too, and I was unsuccessful for the same reason.  Even though the wedding is only 3 hours from most of the guests who haven’t responded, I just don’t know if they’re gonna want to make the trek.  I feel horrible saying this but I kinda need some people not to show!  We only budgeted for 160 guests in total, if they all rsvp yes- we’re screwed!

@moderndaisy – I think that’s sweet. I have 2 dear friends from HS who I hadn’t seen in ages. We reconnected right after we finalized the guest list and suddenly we were hanging out all the time! I was really bummed that I couldn’t invite them, but they totally understood. Now that we have so much wiggle room (we were expecting closer to 175) I’m so happy I can ask them and their men. It’ll make for an even more fun party.

Girls, why don’t you call those people who haven’t RSVP’d? No reason to have to guess and be surprised when they do/don’t show up!

@Jennifer – Our RSVP date is Friday, and this last week especially we’ve suddenly been getting 5-7 a day. People just wait until the last minute. Don’t call anyone before your date, but once it passes definitely feel free to call them up and say WTF?! haha

@sweetadeline– Thanks!  I know I’m being a lil nutty ๐Ÿ˜›  I’ll wait until June 1st to make the calls.  I actually dread calling them, it seems kinda awkward, especially if they don’t plan on coming.

It shouldn’t be awkward for you, @Jennifer – if they didn’t want an awkward conversation they should’ve just sent the damn RSVP! lol
